This show features paintings by three artists who have made professional careers as Art Directors in the game and technology industry. Creatives working in tech are often excluded by their fine art cohorts, due to their association with digital media.
Many people don't realize concept development often begins in traditional media - hand drawing, painting, pastels, and photography. In this show, you'll see the creativity and skill that opens up our story worlds, and give form to the visions that drive a digital industry.
Going analogue, these pixel wizards use paint and canvas to highlight their talents beyond software programs.
#Strangelings weave the art and tech communities together.
Note: There may be an admission charge - Paid bar
